question from tall rider

Hi
I am 6'3 and never drove motorcycle before , looking for advice as per which model provide high seat position ?
So far I looked at Vulcan S , Versys 300/650 . They different category , but Vulcan has Ergo Fit option and Versys generally higher seat by default.
Appreciate good advice .
Thank you , Maxim

Versys 650 is best for me at 6'1 with 34 inch inseam. I also added this https://motowerk.com/collections/kaw...for-kawasaki-1 which helped the legroom even more.

I am also 6'3" tall. Versys 650 is a nice fit. I have the lowering pegs for me and pillion (usually wife). Look at threads re seats. Mirror risers help the taller rider. You may want to look at screens too. My profile lists most of what I have on my 2011.

Since you haven't ridden a bike before, I would suggest you sit on a few and put your feet on the pegs to see how that feels. Having your feet on the pegs is way different than on the ground in the show room. Most dealers will help hold/stabilize the bike so you can lift your feet up and get that feeling. If the dealer you are talking to won't do that, then I'd suggest finding another dealer.

just my 2 cents though.
